Description of problem:
I copied about 130 gigabytes of data to a maxtor firewire drive, formated with
FAT32. I ran the unmount command to unmount the drive and the system then hung.
Ctrl-alt-backspace had no effect and neither did ctrl-alt-delete. I could ping
the machine, but when I tried to ssh to it nothing happened. I waited a while
thinking maybe some i/o was still happening but the system remained frozen.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Sounds like kernel...?
